We know that rewarding Odell Beckham in his NFL debut might be the thing to do. But we try to go a bit deeper here whenever possible.
The embattled quarterback was at the movies Saturday and told the Jets he was thrown off by the three-hour time difference in San Diego, the Daily News reported.
In other years, it would have been just like Big Blue to lose this game against the banged-up Falcons. Not in 2014, though. Not on Sunday.
That left-over feeling of ‘what can go wrong next’ from last season is being replaced with that belief that somehow, someone is going to make a play to win the game.
While Philip Rivers is off to a torrid start for the AFC West-leading Chargers, Geno Smith’s struggles with the Jets are drawing calls for his replacement.
Donnell, an inch taller than Plaxico Burress, could become New York’s next great end zone-target — a regular customer for the Eli Manning fade pass.
Smith was asked if it could help the Jets by putting Michael Vick in for not just a play or two, but an entire quarter — and he, predictably and understandably, bristled.
Week 5 of college football features a lot of trap games for many ranked teams. Many teams begin conference play this week and hope to keep their playoff bracket hopes alive by coming away on top with a W.

Last week, I pegged the Jets as not ready for prime time. Hence the crow, which I’ll gladly chow down if it means I’ve just witnessed the turning point in the maturity of Gang Green.
If somebody is going to take the blame for New York’s miserable start, it’s Tom Coughlin. The 67-year-old coach pointed the finger at himself for the Giants’ worst start since the 1987 strike season.
Justin Tuck refuses to blame the New York Giants’ woe-and-five start on quarterback Eli Manning and the team’s struggling offense.
Even if the Giants QB straightens himself out by Thursday’s game in Chicago — another likely loss for 0-6 — it will be far too little, way too late. Like the cops at a crime scene say, “Go home, folks, nothing to see here.”
Only three of the NFL’s five unbeaten teams could make it to five wins. Kansas City, New Orleans and Denver moved to 5-0 Sunday, while New England and Seattle finally lost.
If the Falcons don’t start winning, they can forget about those Super Bowl hopes. Meanwhile, the Jets don’t want to slip below .500 — especially on national television.
